An anti-tank missile fired from the Gaza Strip has struck a school bus in southern Israel, wounding two people, including one child critically, according to Israeli officials.

Israeli tanks retaliated by opening fire across the border. Palestinians said a 50-year-old man was killed and seven other people were wounded.

Israel’s defence minister, Ehud Barak, ordered the army to respond quickly and said he held Hamas, which controls Gaza, responsible for the violence. There was no claim of responsibility for the attack.

Israeli medical services said the bus was nearly empty after dropping off schoolchildren and was carrying only the driver and one passenger when it was hit. Paramedics tried to resuscitate a 16-year-old boy with a serious head wound at the scene. The driver was moderately wounded.

TV footage showed a yellow bus with windows blown out and the rear charred.

Israel usually responds with tough reprisals to Palestinian attacks. It also launched an air strike on a Hamas training facility in northern Gaza.

The missile attack came hours after Israel carried out a series of air strikes against border tunnels it says are used by militants to smuggle weapons into Gaza from Egypt and carry out attacks.
